Title: Protection of Stratospheric Ozone: The 2010 Critical Use Exemption From the Phaseout of Methyl Bromide 
Abstract: This action would authorize uses that will qualify for the 2010 critical use exemption from the phaseout of methyl bromide, and would also authorize the amount of methyl bromide that may be produced, imported, or supplied from inventory for those uses in 2010. EPA takes this action under the authority of the Clean Air Act to reflect recent consensus decisions taken by the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer at the 20th Meeting of the Parties. The Parties have approved critical use methyl bromide every year since the phaseout in 2005. Since this rulemaking would confer a benefit by exempting the production and use of a phased-out chemical, there is no significant adverse impact on small entities.
